LARPing thriller The Wild Hunt, Screening at the Prince Charles
There will be a screening of The Wild Hunt tomorrow at The Prince Charles Cinema (3.30pm) and the film looks positively crazy. It’s being presented as The Lord of the Rings meets Lord of the Flies and is basically a thriller set in the world of Live Action Role Playing.
The synopsis goes like this: Erik despises the escapist fantasy world of LARPing in Medieval re-enactment games that his brother Bjorn and girlfriend Lyn are involved in. But things go from bad to worse when Lyn not only becomes involved with the world of the LARPers, but is also seduced by Murtagh, the charismatic clan leader in the game so loved by his brother. He realises that he has now to follow her into the game if he is to stand any chance of winning her back. Things become gradually more fraught and emotions start to run high as their mission to win back the Princess stirs up the jealousy of Murtagh and his gang as the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur.
Gorilla Film Magazine will be at the screening tomorrow, so expect a review coming soon. If you want to catch the screening yourself, you can find out more by clicking on this link. And don’t forget to check out The Wild Hunt website and trailer below.
Apparently, actual LARPers in costume are welcome, and there will be a prize for the best dressed!
